The English transfer window may now be closed but European clubs are still able to buy new players until their respective deadlines, meaning that a number of high-profile players could still switch clubs this month.

Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen and Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil have all been linked with moves away from their clubs this month, with sides from outside the Premier League looking to swoop.

“I think the Premier League cannot give this advantage to the European clubs,” Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino complained last weekend. “That is another point to talk about, to argue that we are at a disadvantage to European clubs because they have 20 days more to operate. I think that was a big mistake for the Premier League to allow that - we open the door to different clubs in Europe to try to create confusion within your squad.”
